Theatre Heritage Tour

Join us for one of our Theatre Heritage Tours, with one of our theatre team.

 

Stand on the raked stage and observe the cantilevered tiers or circles, boxes and pit – and the complete visibility of every seat in this atmospheric house.

 

Delve into the history of one of Blackpool’s iconic landmarks with a fantastic display of the theatre timeline.

 

Local businessman Thomas Sergenson secured the world’s leading theatre architect, Frank Matcham, to design the magnificent jewel we know today. Renowned as Matcham’s masterpiece, it has a long and lively heritage history. See the secrets of the great stage, take in Blackpool’s hidden gem, learn about flamboyant architect Frank Matcham and explore the warren of staircases that lead to the stars, dressing rooms and beyond.

 

Blackpool’s Grand Theatre. Entertaining since 1894.

 

Our tours only accommodate 20 people, so ensure you book your space today.

 

Why not explore our YouTube video with Hayley Kay who explored the theatre on a Heritage Tour with one of our volunteers. Travel from 1894 to the present day and learn more about our theatre architect Frank Matcham and his masterpiece that recently celebrated 125 Years. Watch here.
